Coming Soon! The Babine Lake Mammoth: Bones From an Ice Age Giant
January 5, 2023 - December 16, 2023
In 1971 an incredible discovery was made on the shores of Lake Babine. Excavated by a team from the Canadian Geological Institute, the bones of the Babine Lake Mammoth have been part of the collections of the Canadian Museum of Nature since their discovery. Our special exhibition brings these mammoth bones back to northern BC for the first time in decades, and presents the results of new radiocarbon dating studies conducted on a Babine Lake mammoth rib bone in the collection of the BV Museum.
